A brilliant few days on the beach To wake up to the sound of the sea was a delight ?? Brilliant few days to chill out . The accomodation had everything we needed . clean and comfortable ..

Fantastic location, very quiet and neighbours very friendly Would love to stay again but would bring our own outside chairs

Wonderful location near to all facilities but far enough away for peace and quiet. A lovely beach hut with everything you need ??

A little slice of heaven.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the chalet on the beach. It was cosy, comfortable and an absolute joy to go to sleep and wake up to the sound of the sea. We would love to come back!

A little piece of heaven!

fantastic location

As a pensioner holidaying on my own for the first time this was perfect. Sitting on the veranda with a good book & the occasional glass of wine - heaven!

It's a unique experience to stay at The Chalet and one we thoroughly enjoyed. I would say take as little belongings as possible as space is obviously at a premium. Complete relaxation guaranteed but all that Lyme Regis has to offer is minutes walk away. Having the car parking space immediately at the rear of the chalet was a huge bonus.

This little hideaway is a perfect, intimate spot for two people. We loved everything about it, even the fun of my 6'3" husband clambering in to the bed loft!

Fab break, in a beautiful chalet in a lovely location.

A wonderful place to kick back, relax and let the world go by.

A wonderful base for exploring Lyme and the Dorset coast, or simply for just sitting on the deck outside the Chalet with tea and a book and relaxing the afternoon away. This was my second stay at the Chalet, and it was everything I remembered from my first visit last year, and I'm already planning my third visit. The Chalet has everything you need - crockery, tea pot, hot plate, microwave, cooking utensils and pots/pans. My first 'stay' anywhere since lockdown I was delighted and reassured to find the Chalet clean, fresh and ventilated, with plenty of eco-friendly cleaning products provided, including washing up liquid, toilet rolls and hand wash. I will be back to stay again.

This place is a little gem. It had everything you could possibly need for a week away. Hope to visit again someday.

The perfect little beach retreat.

Amazing little property. Simpleness and solitude.. the chalet is literally on the beach and we had severe storms. The owner checked we were ok . The chalet is warm and cosy. Bed is really comfortable. Shower and underfloor heating brilliantl! Can’t wait to go again

An absolutely wonderful chalet in a perfect location.

You can't beat the location. Chalet was compact but perfect for a few days. Parking behind the cottage was a bonus in a busy resort.

The Chalet on the beach exceeded our expectation in terms of comfort, fittings and equipment. The wet room shower was a real bit of luxury with the heated floor and was very spacious considering the overall size of the chalet. All other equipment was of a very high standard. Location was perfect.

If you've ever wanted to fall asleep to the sound of the waves, then this is the ideal place to do so. Sit outside on the deck and watch the light change over the course of the day.

This little chalet is the perfect place for peace, quiet and relaxation! Straight onto the beach, lots of lovely walks , fossil hunting, pubs and shopping all within walking distance! The locals and other holiday makers are friendly and helpful and the chalet is small but has everything you need! I vacant wait to return, in fact I could rent this chalet permanently and stay forever.

We had a great stay thanks Wish i was still there!

We had a wonderful time in the chalet on the beach. Most tranquil setting. We had a very comfortable stay.

We had a fabulous short break and would highly recommend The Chalet at the Beach. It had everything we could ask for and it was wonderful being able to escape back there during the hot afternoons after exploring Lyme Regis in the mornings. Going to sleep hearing the sea was amazing, as was waking up and simply walking out of the door onto the unspoilt Monmouth Beach. We miss it already.

A lovely getaway for the two of us, perfectly located to enjoy the fossil beach, 5 min walk to the beach/cobb facilities. We fished, had a campfire on the beach, walked between the tide times. Had the beach to ourselves in the evening once the fossil hunters had departed. This area of Monmouth beach is stunning, and changes appearance during the tide changes and is beautiful.

Beautiful chalet , clean , modern , great location , we had wonderful weather, so were able to sit outside & admire the view , lovely to have milk , tea , coffee & biscuits on arrival ,that was most welcome , thank you , hope to return next year would definitely recommend x

A perfect location in every way. Not only is it on the beach but is only a short stroll to all amenities Ability to park next to beach hut a real bonus A beach hut with underfloor heating in the wet room. Who’d have thought it!

The chalet is perfect for a quiet break in a great location. I took a pile of books and also enjoyed walks in the area - the Tourist Information Centre was helpful when advising about tides and safety for the walk along the beach to Charmouth.

Stunning location, perfect little hut for two!

We had an excellent week clean comfortable and very relaxing and would highly recommend

From our arrival to our departure a first rate accommodation everything you need is already there best location we have ever stayed in quite and peaceful wonderful wonderful owner and staff can’t wait to rebook

A beautifully and tastefully decorated chalet to the highest specification, thoughtfully planned out with the customer always in mind. We had a perfect stay, would not hesitate to recommend it to friends and look forward to being able to book again in the near future.

A glorious experience and one much treasured. The evenings were peaceful and magical with the beach and the flowing and ebbing tide all to oneself. Just be aware that ‘fossil hunters’ swarm the beach all day with hammers and chisels and the noise of chipping rocks and hammering is very annoying and bang on top of you !! Hence only 4 stars sadly.

Excellent property and company. Everything is in easy walking distance and loads to do. We would definitely recommend and will use classic cottages again.

You can tell the world that we had a perfect time and would reccommend it to lovers or newly married couples.

Wonderful location and design , a lot of care has gone into the chalet . Perfect weekend by the sea.

The Chalet was lovely and was just as described.Beautiful location.

Beautiful chalet, plenty attention to detail to make it a special and relaxing holiday in a wonderful seaside location, close to Lyme centre, yet away from the crowds.

My husband and I would definitely book the chalet again .The weather was exceptional which made the break even better and the view was outstanding.

beautiful place would stay again the owner was very nice and takes care of the chalet like her home. very happy with our stay

The Clalet was just lovely - lovely spot with the sea so close, and a comfy, light and airey chalet. Everything was spotless and felt like new.

Lovely chalet - beautifully equipped in a stunning location. The tea, coffee and biscuits were very welcome when we arrived. Easy walking distance to everything in Lyme Regis but, bearing in mind the cripplingly steep roads in the town, we'd advise walking through the gardens going 'up' and through the town coming 'down'.

So beautiful and petfdctly located - we absolutely fell in love with it (so much so we don't really want to tell anyone!)

Sitting on the verandah, with nothing to spoil your view of the sea and sky is a rare treat. The landscape at this spot is lovely. There are no roads to cross and no parked cars (although the beach is for the most part stoney). If you go expecting hotel-room comfort, you'll be both disappointed and missing the point. It's a beach hut after all. But if you go expecting smart camping, you'll likely be delighted, as were we. We thought the hut cleverly designed, fitted and equipped, especially the kitchen and bathroom. It's all been very well thought out and nothing has been done on the cheap (there are no hand-me-downs here). It's also very well insulated, and has heating.

The verandah has an old table which stays out in rain and shine so is a bit weather worn. This didn't bother us, but if it's likely to bother you, you might want to take a a tablecloth.

The mezzanine bed has pretty low head room and is a bit of challenge to get into, but it is comfortable to sleep in (we managed OK). However, if it's not for you, there's also a sofa bed on the ground-floor level.

This is the third time in less than 2 years we have stayed in Classic Cottage or Classic Glamping sites and the properties have all been exceptional. Loved this chalet the location was stunning literally had the beach in front of you, amazing views. Beautifully kitted out and very comfortable. Loved this for a long weekend.
